Twitter updates Android and iOS apps

And makes them better

We just noticed our Nexus 7 has received an update for the Twitter app which seems to have brought some useful new features.

The app now sports a new design with wider and taller timelines that fill the screen, a flat navigation bar, tap and hold for quick actions. You can also now quickly navigate between tabs by swiping across your screen. And as you type your Tweet or search, you’ll see username and hashtag suggestions, making it easier to connect with friends and join conversations - just like the PC experience.

In addition to the Android app, they've also updated Twitter for iPhone and mobile.twitter.com. All three mobile apps, plus twitter.com, now show more types of content in expanded Tweets: photo galleries, apps and product listings.


You’ll also see a new link right below content that is shared from another mobile app, such as Foursquare or Path.

The link lets you open or download the app right from the Tweet, depending on whether or not you have it installed. As an example, if you expand a Tweet to view a photo from Flickr, you can tap the link to open the photo in Flickr. If you don’t yet have the Flickr app on your phone, you can tap to install it from the Tweet.

You can download these updates from the Google Play or App Store.
